The Spirit's in the Details

2019 Data Analysis of Domestic Violence in Pagan Community

In summer of 2019, Macha's Justice released an anonymized survey allowing domestic violence (DV) survivors who are also pagan, polytheist, or faith-adjacent to submit feedback providing demographic data as well as long-form answers that discuss the intersection of DV and their faith:

  • general region, race/ethnicity, age bracket, gender, romantic/sexual orientation(s)
  • whether or not their faith has been supportive in their healing process and in what ways
  • how domestic violence has impacted their relationships with any gods and spirits in their life
  • in what ways their experiences with pagan community and service providers have been negative, positive, or both
  • what they identify as the most useful skills for a pagan service provider to have when supporting a DV survivor

Through survivors' own words (offered with an explicit release of information and with all identifying information removed), we look at the common trends we can see emerging, including common forms of abuse within the faith community and the insight that provides into how we can foster safer service providers and healthier communities as we move into the future.
